My Goodreads Widget Just Stopped Working

  1. Hi, all, since this problem seems to be fairly widespread and I am seeing it on blogs that don't appear to be from WordPress, I wrote in to Goodreads. They have replied that they changed some of their security protocols, which caused the Goodreads widget not to work. They said WordPress has been in touch with them about this and someone is working on it. The reason that their widgets do not work on WordPress is that WordPress does not allow Javascript. So, I am going ahead and disabling the Goodreads widget that I tried on my blog when the WordPress one broke. And we can hope that WordPress will soon have a new widget for us.

  2. I don't think the issue is just with WordPress.com hosted blogs, because I'm using self-hosted and the widget is also showing the same error: "No books in this shelf yet":

    It's in the footer. It was working fine for more than a year. I just noticed today that it had gone blank.

  3. It's working again! (At least on my blog it is.) Thanks for the help :)

  4. Hi there - The Goodreads widget should be working for everyone now. Thanks for your patience, and let us know if you're still having any problems with it.
